On October 3rd, IIUSA hosted its first ever reception in Mumbai, India as part of the 2017 Global Banquet Series. The banquet served to honor the support from our members both within India and from around the world. The event also provided critical first-hand, and timely, updates regarding the state of the EB-5 Program. With India now considered the 3rd largest EB-5 investor market in the world it was the perfect time for the organization and industry to come together to educate and inform the local market and recognize the growing importance of the market.
Over 100 guests from throughout the industry, including many of our members from throughout India and our U.S.-based members, including Regional Centers, immigration attorneys, banks, consulting companies and more, once again illustrating the diversity and depth of IIUSA membership.
We were also pleased to welcome local guests and would like to extend a special thank you to our event partners the SME Chamber of India and BLS Media who were crucial in the supporting this event and attracting local participants.
IIUSA would also like to extend a special thank you to our event sponsors: CanAm Enterprises, David Hirson & Partners, First Pathways Partners, Golden Gate Global, Mona Shah & Associates and New York City Regional Center. It is though our members valuable support that we can continue to ensure we deliver timely and important events in international markets across the globe.
We hope to see you to see you at a future Global Banquet Series event as well as at our next event, the 7th Annual EB-5 Industry Forum in Miami, FL, in a few short weeks.
